Bronson Beaver is a 13-year old master builder and aspiring inventor who has been rigidly groomed since birth to work hard and someday take over his family’s historic wilderness resort lodge. But for the first time in his life, Bronson attempts to ditch hard work. He decides to secretly build a robot to do his chores before his family’s annual pancake festival event. So he can instead play in a high-stakes video game tournament with his fellow-inventor friends Myron Mink and Franny Fox. With the hope of winning its large cash prize so they can finally build their dream workshop. But, when his robot’s wires get crossed, it unwittingly creates more work and trouble for Bronson and threatens to ruin his family’s big event and any chance of making his dream a reality. It will require a lot of help from his friends and family to overcome the robot’s damages, save the event, and keep their hopes and dreams alive. In the end, Bronson ultimately learns the importance of honesty, responsibility, hard work, and friendship.
